COVID-19 changed life as we know it while exponentially increasing the risk for vulnerable children to carry the life-altering trauma resulting from abuse and neglect. Children’s Bureau is on the front lines, giving thousands of families in Los Angeles and Orange Counties what they need to thrive...and giving them hope. The Heroes of Hope Campaign is an eight-week endeavor to raise critical funds for already fragile children and families struggling to survive.
Every year, there are nearly 30,000 substantiated child abuse claims in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Children’s Bureau works every day to counteract this tragic reality through programs that build resilience, stability, and overall family health.
The Heroes of Hope Campaign is an eight-week endeavor to raise critical funds for already fragile children and families struggling to survive. We will highlight our three agency pillars – Foster Care & Adoption, Mental Health, and Prevention – to show how Children’s Bureau’s innovative child abuse prevention and treatment programs help save children’s lives. By sharing the real-life stories of heroes on the front lines, we will demonstrate why these resources are critical to the wellness of thousands of families, now and beyond the pandemic.
Former Children’s Bureau President & CEO Alex Morales and his wife Martha have generously given $100,000 as a matching gift opportunity for this campaign. We are incredibly grateful for their ongoing support.
